Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Man’s Chest

My Rating: 4Stars

This afternoon I went to see the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” at Ocean Cinema, Tsim Sha Tsui.

What can I say, Johnny Depp is at his usual best.

For some reason ever since Johnny Depp stared in the first Priates of the Caribbean movie he seems to have carried his Captain Jack Sparrow character into his real live. Or may be it is just him playing the role to promte the movie. During his interview on David Letterman, when Letterman ask when he will take the gold teeth caps out, Depp just said, “why take them out when there’s a third movie”. Yes, for those who do not know, there is another sequel coming, “Pirates of the Caribbean 3“. It was three years between the first two in the sequel, this next one is tentatively going to be released on May 25, 2007.

Anyway, this sequel has the same priates chants, characters and sword fights that everyone expect from a priate movie. Although at times there are too many of the usual expected stuff, which made the movie a bit slow.

I always judge the interestingness of a movie by how often I notice my surroundings during the movie. Although it was not often, I was not able to totally immerge myself. Even so I do enjoy the movie and the performance of Depp. The special effects and makeup are amazing too.
